Prayer for September 26: Please pray with me. God who is ever the same, yet always changing, come to us. We desperately want to maintain the status quo – to give us the appearance that we are in control. Except we aren’t. We are foolish to believe that we can control things. Open our hearts and minds to know this truth so we don’t suffer as a result. Open our arms to embrace the constant change of life. Open us to embrace you. If we are not in control, then we need you Lord. We fool ourselves when we think we can control things – we also brush you aside when we think we are in control. Forgive us. Reorient us towards you. Amen.
